There are those days when my brain is buzzing with great content that I’m ready to share with you all…and then there are days like today. Slow, fuzzy hump days when an idea for a post just seems to be floating out of reach.
Because of that, I won’t be sharing a post that specifically has a theme. I’m just going to be sharing random stuff that has managed to put a smile on my face…and maybe it’ll put a smile on your face too.
What a superhero film! Whoa. V for Vendetta is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before of this genre, led brilliantly by Natalie Portman as a young woman named Evey who meets him…V, perfectly portrayed by Hugo Weaving who delivers my favorite performance of his yet. Oh my goodness, wow!
If you’re wondering who exactly “V” is he’s basically Batman; a British vigilante who becomes a symbol to fight oppression. This film, part of DC Comics’ vast repertoire of stories and based on a graphic novel, feels so relevant now in our time when the world feels like it’s on the verge of flames.
Natalie Portman is an Oscar-winning actress who has been in my life since I was a little girl for her role as Padme in the Star Wars movies. And that’s why I wanted to highlight her for this week’s A Movie Ranking. Enjoy!
7. Thor: The Dark World
If I’m being honest, I did not like Natalie Portman’s role as Jane Foster in the first two Thor films. In fact, she felt like a blot to the overall story, making her lack of appearance in Thor: Ragnarok a breath of fresh air. I’m hoping her role in Thor: Love and Thunder will be more tasteful.

Yesterday I shared a list of all of Padme’s looks from The Phantom Menace. Today, we look at her prettiest wardrobe yet from Attack of the Clones. Enjoy!
Padme knew she was hated by the Trade Federation and that they would one day try to enact their revenge. It’s why, even as a senator, she had to travel with such caution. So, at the beginning of Attack of the Clones, we see Padme dressed as a pilot to remain undercover and yet even in a piloting outfit she manages to look stylish.
It was announced on Saturday that the fourth Thor film would be called Thor: Love and Thunder and would feature Natalie Portman as female Thor. Tessa Thompson revealed that Valkyrie’s ready to find a queen. On Sunday I had an epiphany. Thor: Love and Thunder is writing itself as a romantic comedy. Think about it.
Taika Waititi likes to subvert movie genres into a superhero format. Thor: Ragnarok was practically a buddy comedy and for Thor: Love and Thunder Taika Waititi has totally set up a love triangle, hence it will most likely be a romantic comedy wrapped around a superhero story.
Thor totally digs both of these powerful women, Valkyrie kind of likes Thor but more as a friend than anything but she may be impressed by the new and improved Jane, and Jane, well, she already dumped Thor so who knows how she feels about him.
All in all, Taika Waititi is going to make another zany superhero film that’s certain to please the masses and I’m definitely intrigued.
